truth College Leaders

Since 2018, more than 35 colleges have held cigarette butt and vape waste cleanups on their campuses collecting over 60lbs of waste!

Some Creative Tips for Your Cleanup: 

  • Melissa and Michelle at South Texas College kicked their cleanup off with a pizza party 
  • Charlene and Yliana at Roxbury Community College split their volunteers up into teams to see who could collect the most litter.
  • Andrew at Crafton Hills College used the butts collected to create an art installation
  • Colleges with waterfronts like Kauai Community College, North Idaho College and the College of the Florida Keys have shared how harmful cigarette butts and vape waste can be to their aquatic environments.

Tony Passino

Environmentalist + truth Activist

Tony's love for the environment began at an early age. From playing in the woods, climbing trees, and building forts, he has developed an understanding of the natural world and where he belongs in it.

Tony says "if we truly want to protect the environment, we must first develop a relationship with the environment. The idea behind this is simple: We will never fight for something that we have no connection to it."

Tony has been using his passion for the environment to take action for truth. He has worked as a community leader in Indianapolis, as a truth tour rider for High School Nation, and continues to work with truth as an activist.
